Privately: Can AI help make the internet safer for children?

For years, the technology sector could do no wrong – but since the COVID pandemic, there has been an increasing backlash driven by concerns over data privacy, the rise of AI, and tech sector layoffs. While technology is still the most trusted business sector, according to the latest Edelman Trust Survey, there is also growing skepticism about whether tech firms can not only develop exciting new products and services but also serve society, solving problems and having a positive impact. 

Against this backdrop, this series showcases companies that are using technology to contribute to society. Spanning startups that are tackling a range of pressing challenges, from online safety to antibiotic resistance to waste in the beverage industry, the founders in this series aren’t driven by technology alone – they are doing what they’re doing to create a better world.  

In the first episode, Professor Jim Pulcrano meets Deepak Tewari (IMD MBA 2007), founder and CEO of Privately, which has developed technology to make the internet a safer and better place for children.
